The 2019 EPT Monte Carlo Main Event has been good for players who qualified for the tournament online. Just ask Ryan Riess.

Ryan Riess is on a roll here in Monte Carlo

The 2013 WSOP Main Event champ is one of six players remaining in the hunt for this year’s title. Should he go on to win, he would become the first world champion to add an EPT Main Event title to his resumé. He would also earn a massive return on his initial investment, given that he earned his seat in a PokerStars online satellite.

Riess was one of 105 players PokerStars qualifiers who played this tournament. Together they represented 11.3 percent of the 922-player field, or roughly one out of every nine participants.

As a group these qualifiers outperformed the rest of the field. In all, 22 of them made the money — that’s 16.2 percent, or roughly one in six, of all those who did so.
